So.. I want to DTA only the flac files, but all of the music files have .flac in their name ex. tlg2006-06-24.onstage.flac16/tlg2006-06-24d1t15_vbr.mp3

So how do I get the filter to only pick up the flac files?

Yep, I've had this problem and haven't seen a way to solve it yet. Perhaps others have an idea. For now, on shows where I see "flac" in the file name itself, I have to simply click the buttons next to each file I want before starting DTA.

Extensions> DownThemAll> Options> Filters> you will see a place to make a filter. I'm not at the PC where I have it or I wold post an example string for (flac, md5, txt).

DTA - DownThemAll extension for FireFox. Re the filter, I too create my own filters (flac, vbr.mp3, etc.) But so far, when I use ".flac" as a filter it doesn't distinquish between flac as the file extension or flac anywhere in the file name. I've experimented with the "reg. ext." option (regular extension) in the filter setup but this doesn't seem to help.

(Replying quite some time later, just so that this information is all in one place.)

That's "Reg. Ex.", which stands for regular expression, a powerful syntax for matching patterns in text.

Here's what I use for the LMA: /(\.(flac|shn|txt|ffp|md5))$/

The dollar sign ($) is a magic character that means "match only to the end of the text". So, this only matches links that have "flac" or "shn" or "txt" or "ffp" or "md5" at the end.

Aha! Thanks so much. I use the DTA interface frequently and have struggled to do exactly what you have now laid out so clearly! It is that look only if at the end of file issue (the $) that I had never figured out.
